Discover. Collect. Return. This is the philosophy that has inspired the creation of Auckland’s most intriguing new bar in Federal Street, Auckland. A must visit on any Auckland night out, Red Hummingbird promises an escape into the unknown – a through-the-looking-glass trip to a Wonderland without conventional order. But with no Mad Hatters … or at least not yet!

Vibe Retro Kiwiana combines with the old school elegance of a gentlemen’s club. Eclectic conversation starters include stuffed gamebirds, replica Goldie paintings, a giant tiki, and a private room decorated with Playboy magazines from the 1970s - just the covers, OK. If you’re in a group, ask about booking out the 12-person birdcage on the Red Hummingbird’s leafy rear deck. 

Owners Luke Dallow and Dean Neill, Australasian Hospitality Guru and Director of the TNG Hospitality Group means they have equipped the Red Hummingbird bar in Federal Street, Auckland with a sassy and well-trained team.

What’s On Tap? Monteith’s Pilsner and Crushed Apple cider, Tiger and Heineken, with the usual DB suspects of Amstel, Sol and Budvar by the bottle. At least the cocktail list is more inspired – try the Murray’s Dream with Stolen rum, fresh chilli, ginger, passionfruit, lemon and orange juice.

Feeling Peckish? Look forward to eclectic spins on classic Kiwi tucker - everything from Cumberland sausages rolls and jam donuts, to smoked eel on toasted sweetbread and crisps with classic Kiwi onion dip. The Bottom Line Yet another savvy eating and drinking venue from Luke Dallow, with a quirky, but unpretentious atmosphere.

Expect Red Hummingbird to quickly become central Auckland’s busiest bar. A Reason To Return To try the Peruvian-style roast chicken served with rye bread and chargrilled piquillo peppers.
